The National Corvette Museum has gotten a facelift.

The museum recently unveiled an addition and a renovation that came with a $10 million price tag.

Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode told the Daily News of Bowling Green that such an expansion was unthinkable 15 years ago when the facility first opened.

Construction began in November 2007. Now, a year and a half later, the museum measures a total of 115,000 square feet.

The museum boasts a new gift shop, a library and archives center, a conference center, The Corvette Cafe and Corvette Boulevard, which is an indoor track where new Corvettes are displayed.
